Whether you’re in town for a wedding, a work-do, or a roadtrip north, no self-respecting blow-in could stake their claim on this beachside village without having tackled a T-bone, kissed a canetoad, or mislaid hours on the dance floor at the IronBar.Plan to see Iron Bar and other attractions that appeal to you using our Port Douglas online journey maker.
Quite frankly, you haven’t been to Port Douglas if you haven’t been to the IronBar.
Bang in the middle of the main street, the IronBar is pretty much synonymous with “ripper of a good time”, whether as a restaurant, bar, state-of-the-art gaming lounge or mecca for late night shenanigans.
By day, a popular dining destination, the IronBar’s steakhouse menu features a lip smacking range of your favourite Aussie pub style eats.
An esky-cool bar provides welcome relief from the tropics, with a range of Australian and imported beers. Shoot some pool, chew the fat with the locals or simply watch the world pass by.
Expect the unexpected after dinner, as the IronBar transforms into a battleground for the Far North’s most pestilent and most virulent beasts.
Welcome to Nicky G’s Cane Toad Racing Spectacular!
Celebrated affectionately as “dubiously ethical”, “unashamedly politically incorrect” “amphibian debauchery at its finest” and “side–splitting bogan mischief for the whole family”, this is what Iron Bar memories are made of.
Kiss a toad, take home a trophy…and maybe take the kids home at this stage too...because the good times are just starting to kick in…
Iron Bar blitzes into the epic oasis of nightlife in Port Douglas. Tropical beats, sophisticated cocktails, and cosmopolitan characters mingle in a seething, heaving fever of comedy, regret, style, and adventure! Choose your groove, across two levels of indoor and outdoor space, with the perfect balance of dance floors, quiet corners, accessible bars, and street space.
Revel amongst an eclectic mix of locals, visitors, royalty, backpackers, celebrities, wedding parties, cane toads and sporting teams bringing an unpretentious and enduring Aussie atmosphere where everybody is welcome, everybody is friendly and... everybody will DANCE!

Iron Bar Reviews
Food was quality. Very friendly staff and the toad racing was great fun! Definitely recommend for an Aussie night out more »
We visited Iron Bar after a recommendation to watch the cane toad race, let me tell you Matt the host is bloody hilarious and makes for a very entertaining race. If you’re in town and free at 8pm, do.... more »
The cane toad racing for $5 at 8 pm every night is a definite to not miss, we went in for a few drinks and to watch the race and were not disappointed. Ended around 8:45 where we decided to stay for some food. Good prices and classic pub/ Aussie food but good quality. Nice cocktails and excellent service. You have to order by 9 and we had a lovely blonde foreigner lady make sure our order got through and was very attentive. Nice atmosphere too, not too loud.
Good location, friendly staff, and delicious food. I ordered a steak and my wife had a burger - both were very tasty and arrived in a reasonable time. Would definitely recommend this place to others.
